Lawrence, Kan. – Nov. 20, 2010
– Kansas quarterback Quinn Mecham completed a 36-yard pass to WR Chris Omigie to open the game, which represented Omigie’s longest reception and Mecham’s second-longest pass of the season.
– Omegie recorded three catches for 41 yards against the Cowboys. Prior to the game, the redshirt freshman had three catches in his career.
– Kansas TE Tim Biere caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Mecham in the first quarter. It marked KU’s first opening drive touchdown of the season, and first touchdown in the first quarter since the New Mexico State game.
– Biere’s touchdown catch was his fourth of the season, which leads the team. All four of his touchdown receptions have come in home games (vs. Georgia Tech, New Mexico State, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State).
– Kansas sophomore Bradley McDougald made his first defensive start of his career, opening the game as KU’s strong safety. McDougald has started 13 games in his career at WR. He played some defense last year, making five tackles and an interception.
– Kansas sophomore Kale Pick recorded an eight-yard reception – his first catch as a Jayhawk. Pick recorded two catches for nine yards.
– Kansas CB Greg Brown recorded three pass breakups in the first quarter, which matches the most by a Jayhawk this season.
– Kansas RB James Sims ran for a 24-yard touchdown in the first quarter, giving him a team-leading eighth rushing touchdown of the year. Sims’ eight rushing touchdowns are the most by a Jayhawk since Jake Sharp scored 12 in 2008.
– Kansas CB Chris Harris made 11 tackles in the game, marking the fourth time in the last five games that he has double-digit numbers in tackles. Harris is also 16 tackles away from reaching 300 in his career.
– During the first half, QB Quinn Mecham completed eight-straight passes. In the Colorado game, Mecham set a school record with 17 consecutive pass completions.
– In the third quarter, P Alonso Rojas recorded a 50-yard punt, which gives him 12 punts of 50 yards or more this season. At least one in each game except the Colorado game.
– Kansas QB Jordan Webb made his first appearance since the Texas A&M game on Oct. 23. Webb completed 6-of-9 passes for 36 yards in two series.
